HTML is referred to as a markup language, because you're marking up your text or "content" for the page with tags to to give it structure. Programming languages are different because they offer functionality that basic HTML typically can't. Things like the ability to compare different pieces of data, make calculations, process data, give alternate output depending on what a user enters as input, and so much more. All of this comes together because of someone who designs and programs all this code, known as the programmer.

Also, here's a helpful excerpt: "HTML is not a programming language; it is a markup language, which means it is a system for identifying and describing the various components of a document such as headings, paragraphs, and lists. The markup indicates the document's underlying structure (you can think of it as a detailed, machibe-readable outline). You don't need programming skills---only patience and common sense---to write HTML."
